Millennium: What is it about Smart cars that inspires so much hatred, anyway?
oldfarthenry: Millennium: What is it about Smart cars that inspires so much hatred, anyway?'merikuns think of their cars like bald men thinks of their toupees - an extension to their masculinity (or lack thereof).
AverageAmericanGuy: He works at home with computers.So his Fark handle is...?
jaybeezey: Millennium: What is it about Smart cars that inspires so much hatred, anyway?For me it's their poor price to performance ratio. You can get a lot more car for the money with a Chevy Spark or Ford Fiesta.

You can get a lot more car for the money with a Chevy Spark or Ford Fiesta.For the size of the car, it gets really bad mileage. The Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit and a bunch of other cars in that class get about the same mileage and can hold four people and some stuff.The only thing Smart cars do well is park in tight spaces, and that really isn't an issue in the US the way it is in Europe.
ChromoSomes: Shouldn't ya havta pass an I.Q. test to drive a Smart Car?
Babboonrash: I'm discouraged to hear that. For my job I drive the hated "big truck"... but was considering this little thing for weekend driving. Not practicle with a family though.
natazha: Saw a Smart car the other day with a windup key, like they used to put on VW Bugs. My wife is too young to remember the original Bug, but we both LOL.The only person I know that had a Smart car got rid of it because it couldn't accelerate on left turns.
Calmamity: Additionally; If Smart car owners really gave a sh*t about the environment they'd drive a 1998 Corrolla instead of buying a new car shipped here from France.
